Hello! I am a total newbie to smoking, but am planning on changing that very soon. I love grilling and I think this is a natural progression of that.  As of right now, I do not have a smoker, but I am designing one and hope to have it completed in the coming months.  I am a machinist by profession and a blacksmith by hobby.  Metal work is not new to me, but There are enough dynamics involved in this that I felt I would be better off seeking the advice and help of those who have already made the mistakes I am about to.  That being said I thank you for letting me join your forum and I hope you do not have to yell at me very often.
